Latin American Film and Historical Moments in the Continent
This session deals with film and history in Latin America. The films in discussion should reflect the major historical moments in the region beginning with the age of “discovery” and conquest, colonial rule and independent times.
Under this historical umbrella, the films in this session should address issues of civilización y barbarie, race, slavery, political persecution, misogyny, homophobia and revolution (among others). Participants should be cognizant that visual narratives dealing with race, class, gender, sexuality, language, nation, and identity reflect philosophical tenets prevalent in particular historical moments.
Films like Cabeza de Vaca, Los olvidados, Camila, La historia oficial, Memorias del subdesarrollo, La última cena and others might help us reflect on those historical moments.
